In a terrible turn of events, three Vande Bharat trains were pelted with stones in Bengaluru on Sunday. Two of these three terrifying incidents were reported within the Bengaluru Railway Division. While there have been no injuries reported, the glass window panes of the trains were severely damaged.

As per The New Indian Express, the first incident was reported at 6:15 AM Chikkabanavara Railway Station in Bengaluru Railway Division. The stone pelters targeted the KSR Bengaluru-Dharwad Vande Bharat Express on coach C6.

The second incident was recorded around 3:20 PM. The miscreants targeted the Dharwad-KSR Bengaluru Vande Bharat Express that was travelling in the return direction. They damaged window panes on coach C5 between the Haveri and Harihar Railway Stations in Mysuru Division. In the last incident, the Mysuru-MGR Central Vande Bharat was targeted at 4:30 PM near the Kuppam Station in the Bengaluru Division. Several window panes were damaged in this incident as well.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time such an incident has taken place on Vande Bharat trains. According to the authorities, 45 arrests have been made from July to December 2023 for stone pelting on Vande Bharat trains alone. They further mentioned that about 70% of these miscreants are minors who do it merely for fun. However, after strict actions were taken against the miscreants, the railway authorities noticed fewer incidents before this unfortunate occurrence on Sunday.

Causing damage to public property and endangering the lives of people like this is a truly condemnable offence. We hope the miscreants are rightly punished so that such incidents don’t take place again. Let us know your take on the entire incident in the comments!
